    2016 Sierra Denali
  1. A guy I know did that to a cop car. He didn't hang around or leave a note...but, he does pay his taxes and figures that they covered the cost of a new mirror for the government vehicle.
  2. Just got one in my email $1,000-$3,000 off. Offer depends on vehicle. Have a list of them it's good for. $2,000 on LD/HD trucks. Shoot me a pm if interested and I'll send the code...first come, first served. Expires oct 2, 2017.
  3. Anybody else park their truck?

    As the name implies, I'm offshore 75% of the year. My truck is 11months old and has 3,200 miles on her. That includes the 450 or so mile drive home from picking her up. I've actually been driving a lot more lately with renovations at the house, so on e that's finished, I imagine I'll be around 2,500 miles a year. I say drive it. That's the whole reason for owning it right?
  4. Is Julia Roberts The Prettiest Woman In The World

    I mean, she's not hideous, but not my cup of tea. Think her mouth is too big for her face. Look strange. ...of course, I have a crooked nose, balding forehead, lazy cross eyed, and have a bit of a gimpy leg, so...I don't want to be one to criticize the way others look.
  5. Did a hair over 600 miles in a day on an old 4 speed, kick-start Harley. That was a LOOOONNNNNGGG day. The truck is much more comfortable.
  6. On Star is a joke...

    Yeah, haha, I thought about that after I hit "reply". I guess if it only turned on once the phone starts moving 25mph or so...I know they have some phones/apps that turn phone to silent once the phone starts moving over a certain speed. Basically to prevent one from using the cell while driving. I'm sure someone much smarter than myself could program something up. Once phone moves faster than 25mph, then stops abruptly at xyz rate, it is considered a crash situation. App sends a text "are you okay?"...no reply after x amount of time, notify authorities. If it were cheaper than onstar, I'm sure a segment of drivers may decide it's worth it. Hrmmm...if someone creates this and gets a big bag of money for it, they definitely owe me a beer or two.
  7. On Star is a joke...

    Like southern said...I work with a guy that keeps it because they called him after he totaled a brand new car. Says he'll never own a vehicle without it. Also claims he will stop texting and driving (caused the wreck). I'm surprised nobody has created an app that can determine when you're in a wreck and call for help. Or have they and I'm just unaware of it?
  8. Damn, tough one to swallow there. I'm assuming you're okay...glad to hear that. Sucks though. Personally, I like stock except for matching the tint. Easier to "blend" in.
  9. I did the same as others, looked at a duramax colorado, ended up with a denali sierra for the same price. I fully intended to buy the smaller truck, but no dealer would budge on the price. I've actually been using the larger bed a lot, so it worked out well.
  10. I had mine for almost 4 years and about 50,000 miles. It was a good truck to me. I had a power lock issue on the rear door and a rear wheel speed sensor. The speed sensor messed with traction control and ABS. It was $17 and took 3 minutes to fix. The lock was ~$100, took 20-30 minutes to replace that. Only two issues I recall having.
  11. I had an '09 tahoe with the 5.3....towed a~4500lb boat all the time. I never had any afm or oil issues, honestly never noticed the afm. It had 3.08 gears and left a bit to be desired when towing, but otherwise ran well.
  12. Insurance?

    I have allstate with the drivewise. I drive slow and not much, so it helps me out.
  13. How many people smoke (legal stuff) in their new truck?

    That's pretty funny. Always some douche like that guy in the vape shops. I absolutely despise going in them. I consider going back to real cigarettes daily...but, then I think about how much money I save, and that I don't smell like a bonfire all the time.
  14. How many people smoke (legal stuff) in their new truck?

    Haha...looks just like me. Must be my twin. (He's the creepy one, I don't wear socks with my flip flops)
  15. Yeah, I thought the 18s were getting the 10spd. I find it a bit odd that they're teaming up to build the trans. Something fishy is in the works I'm beginning to think. Will we see a 5.3 in an f150 next? Also, my trans started acting up. Didn't have any issues with it the past 10 months or so, now it's starting to get jerky. Truck just turned 3,000 miles today. I'm not thrilled.
